Working on steep roofs presents unique challenges for roofing professionals. Not only do they need to concentrate on the task at hand, but they must also remain continually mindful of their safety. This is where a quality safety harness comes in. A good safety harness can mean the difference between a normal day at work and a catastrophic fall.
In our mission to prioritize safety, we at Kiwi Roof Masters have compiled a list of the top 7 safety harnesses specifically designed for steep roofs. Here they are:
